Ingredients

for the sour cream pesto dip

  • 30 g basil leaves
  • 10 g pine nuts
  • 20 g Parmesan freshly grated
  • 1 clove garlic cut in half
  • 40 ml olive oil extra virgin
  • 100 g sour cream
  • pinch salt and pepper to season

for the Prosciutto dippers

  • 230 g puff pastry pre-rolled rectangle
  • 1 tbsp (heaped) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp (heaped) Parmesan freshly grated
  • 100 g Prosciutto Crudo good quality
  • 1 egg beaten
  • pinch pepper to season

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the pre-rolled rectangle of puff pastry on a lined baking tray and brush with the mustard. Sprinkle over the Parmesan then make a layer of prosciutto so the pastry is mostly covered. Press down slightly so everything sticks together a little easier
  • . Cut the pastry into 14 strips across the way then double them up making sure the Prosciutto sides are facing each other. You should now have 7 long prosciutto pastry sandwiches. Each dipper can be cut in half at this point if you want to serve more smaller portions.
  • Twist each dipper into curly straws and place back onto the baking sheet. Brush each dipper with egg then bake for 10-15 minutes until golden and crispy.
  • Meanwhile make the pesto. Place the basil, parmesan, garlic, pine nuts and olive oil in a bowl and blitz together with an immersion (handheld) blender until completely smooth. Season with salt and pepper and add the sour cream, stir then transfer to serving bowl.
  • Once the dippers are golden and crispy, remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving with the sour cream pesto dip.

Notes

Each dipper can be cut in half before being baked to serve more.
